Mr. Wolfson’s decision to join Fox represents a general feeling among Clinton partisans that the network treated her more fairly than did other networks it viewed as overly friendly to Mr. Obama.

Now, for all those who instantly dismiss any and all news stories from Fox; shut yer yap.

No. This illustrates that fox was friendlier towards Hilary than Obama. Which is a problem, because he is the Presidential candidate.

Fox were pretty sure who would make it, as we all were. If they presented her in a good light, it was for one reason only. To keep the race prolonged and dragged out so that Obama loses support to Hillary.

What???

This one incident cleanses FOX of all their previous journalistic sins? I think not. The day I can turn on FOX and not have to see stories about laser pens being used for terror attacks on planes, or the impending Africanised bees apocalypse , or random, completely non-newsworthy stories about people putting up signs that link Osama Bin Laden to Barrack Obama then I can take them a little more seriously.

You're calling Fox fair and balanced because they showed more Clinton bias than Obama bias? Hmmmmmmm.

And furthermore this is actually proof that FOX is NOT fair and balanced.

They're a fucking news station, they shouldn't be biased towards any candidate or party.

People are sheep. That's why Fox's followers scream about how it's the only balanced news, because they agree with Fox's bias. If Air America started telling everyone that they're the only source of fair news, its followers would start acting the same way.

I agree, in so much as the same should be said about ALL news organizations, including the ones who have nearly cannonized Obama.

Yeah, all this is is proof that fox is as right-wing as we've always thought. Their support of Clinton is just proof of their fear of Obama, a much farther left candidate.

When I watch news, I usually switch to ch 82 Fox, then I switch to ch 81 CNN, then ch 80 Headline News. I rarly watch ch 83 MSNBC for /failing everyday as a news source. I admit Il  like Fox because it is obvious to me that they cover more headline stories then the others. Plus they have the most hotties CNN is clearly democratic/ liberal biased  IMO.

Rupert Murdoch has helped fund Hillary in the past.  He's also said a few nice things about Obama as well.

He's a businessman, so he hedges his bets.  If he thinks Obama will win, he'll put his money and his media toward gaining favor from him.  He did this with Hillary back when he thought Hillary would win the nomination.

Personally, Murdoch is very economically conservative, which is why he's more at home with the Republicans.  When it comes to social views, he seems moderate and maybe even liberal, but he's willing to promote social conservatism if he thinks that will make him more money (which it often has).

When you look at how the most wealthy and powerful people get involved in politics, they generally fund both sides, but they sometimes will fund one side a little more than the other if they think that side has a better chance of winning.

Newsmeat.com is a great source for looking up that kind of thing.

Mr. Wolfson was the biggest douchebag when Hillary was running against Obama.  This doesn't make Fox look better in my view.  They obviously picked him so they could say "Hey, we're fair and balanced" when in reality they just picked some asshole willing to work for them. 

Just like Alan "I'm a liberal?" Colmes

They have more opposing views shows than the others.  You guys make me laugh.  Eviscerate FOX News as biased but give CNN, MSNBC, etc a pass.  Hmmmm maybe you just agree with the bias of the other stations.
